The Journey of your own success comes from within (Part 2)

Preparing for a Triathlon takes a lot of dedication and commitment. Without the motivation to overcome the daily challenges that lay ahead, succeeding will become almost impossible. All of which my dear Friend and Client Judith Peterhoff managed to overcome during an intense period of training for not only a triathlon but also a self initiated 1000 mile bike ride. I feel extremely lucky and humbled that once again, part of my role as a massage therapist offers the opportunity to support my cli...

Do any of you know Jon Musker?

Friend and Client from year Zero of Tiger Therapy, Jon is an absolute aspiration and inspiration to me. He takes a logical and methodical approach to all aspects of life (including his dating plan which was based on numbers and probabilities) and doesn't believe in the adage that talent "must come naturally". Jon believes that anyone is capable of doing anything they want to in life, they need only apply themselves and most of all believe in themselves. "My Motto in training and in...

Using hot stones for the deep work

Have you have seen those images depicting hot stone treatments, where the stones are placed on the bare skin of the client? And have you ever wondered how on earth you can tolerate several hot stones being placed on you while you supposedly relax? Or how useful a treatment using boiling hot stones can really be, if the stones are just placed directly on your skin? Let me clarify. It's more than it looks like in those pictures. In its true and traditional format, a hot stone therapy is a ...

The journey of your own success comes from within (Part 1)

Do you ever go to a restaurant, spend ages choosing your meal, only to look around at what everyone else has chosen and think, "damn why didn't I choose that?" I used to do it every time, which is surprising really because anyone who knows me, knows I enjoy a huge variety of food, so why wouldn't I be satisfied with the food on my plate, the food I had chosen for myself? Recently I started adopting the same mentality to my hobbies and active lifestyle choices, until in the end I becam...

All Four Paws!

About 2 weeks before New Years I finally decided that a year into running my business I really need to get myself back into a sensible routine. Sleeping too long in to the morning because I could, and because I had spent all my working life getting up before 7am because I had to, encouraged the rebellion I was experiencing most mornings. Much to my own detriment… Lately having had so much trouble sleeping and every day feeling so far behind on the day to running of my business, never q...

The Power of your Effleurage

If you are a massage therapist you probably already know that your effleurage serves several purposes. For all you lovely clients out there, effleurage is the first stroke of a massage that is characterised by its long, soothing technique. It is your first point of contact with each other as therapists and clients, it is a link between different parts of the treatment and often between different techniques. It applies the massage medium and is the start of all massage treatments, but mor...

Relationships with Food..

As a qualified personal trainer, all round gym warrior turned full time massage therapist, I often find myself in or among conversations that centre around food, and physique. I'm not a scientist, I'm not a nutrition coach, I'm not a fitness model, but as a regular member of society I've been through a weight loss journey of my own and I've spent many an hour pondering my relationship with food, especially since my cultural background revolves heavily around food. You know you are Greek Cypri...

Back, Neck and Shoulders

Following on from my previous blog about muscle knots it struck me that an awful lot of my clients have been coming to me specifically with upper back/shoulder pain, the causes of which have been rather diverse.  As a massage therapist it is often extremely difficult to ascertain what might be the cause of upper back /shoulder pain if there is no obvious cause such as a pull or injury which would be felt immediately and not forgotten.  It is also NOT my place to diagnose. During many c...

Complementary Therapies.

Weight Training. Power Lifting. Pole Dancing. Aerial Hoop. Martial Arts. Yoga. Running. The list could be endless, but all could be referred to as a therapy, and all of them are complementary to each other as well as to those who undertake them. ...

Take your Yoga brain with you to the gym!

As I always say to all my clients, Yoga is a fundamentally good basis for any kind of regular mindful practise. What we learn through consistent yoga practise is focus, good breathing techniques, strength and suppleness, as well as all the positive emotional benefits a good yoga practise can give. For those days when you want to work your body in a passive way, stretch out the bad postures of the week and clear your mind. I have found that a basic yoga class is a perfect foundation to any oth...

The Tyger, By William Blake

Tyger Tyger, burning bright, In the forests of the night; What immortal hand or eye, Could frame thy fearful symmetry?   In what distant deeps or skies. Burnt the fire of thine eyes? On what wings dare he aspire? What the hand, dare seize the fire?   And what shoulder, & what art, Could twist the sinews of thy heart? And when thy heart began to beat, What dread hand? & what dread feet?   What the hammer? what the chain, In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? what d...
